Following their 1-1 draw last week, West Ham and Bristol City will run it back in a replay of their third-round FA Cup showdown at Ashton Gate on Tuesday. With a spot in the final 32 on the line, this sets up as a dramatic, must-watch battle. If you live in the United States, the match will start at 2:45 p.m. ET and will be broadcast exclusively on ESPN+. It’s not on regular cable TV anywhere, which limits your legal live stream options, but that also makes it very simple to watch. Here’s everything you need to know to watch Bristol City vs West Ham today,

As previously mentioned, ESPN+ is the only place you can watch Bristol City vs West Ham if you live in the United States. Unfortunately, there is no longer a free trial, but if you’re planning on watching any more of the 2023-24 FA Cup, you’ll want ESPN+ for the long-term anyways. The streaming service includes every single remaining match, from the upcoming fourth round all the way through to the final.

The service costs either $10.99 per month for ESPN+ by itself, or $14.99 for a bundle of ESPN+, Hulu and Disney+. Not only does ESPN+ include every FA Cup match, but it also comes with dozens of other live sports, including the Championship, Bundesliga, La Liga, Copa del Rey and other international soccer, plus all the 30-for-30 documentaries and other original content, so the price is easily worth it.

If you normally live in the US and have ESPN+ but need to travel out of the country during the match, you may notice that you can’t watch. That’s because ESPN+ is limited to only  those who are in the United States, but there is a workaround in the form of a virtual private network (VPN), which can mask your location and allow you to stream ESPN+ as if you’re still located in the US. There are plenty of options when it comes to VPN’s, but NordVPN is our choice here. It’s extremely reliable and comes with a free 30-day trial so you can try it out risk-free.

Professional tennis heads down under for the 2024 Australian Open. The 112th edition of the Australian Open will begin in Melbourne on a Sunday for the first time. As the first major of the year, the Australian Open is one of two Grand Slam events to be played on a hard court, with the other being the US Open.

On the men's side, Novak Djokovic returns to defend his 2023 title. Djokovic won three of four Grand Slams in 2023, with his lone loss coming in the Wimbledon finals. Rafael Nadal was scheduled to return to competition, but the Spaniard pulled out due to injury. On the women's side, defending champion Aryna Sabalenka and 2023 US Open champion Coco Gauff will be the ones to beat. Four-time major champion Naomi Osaka is back in the field after skipping all of 2023 to give birth to her first child.

We recommend using Sling TV to watch the Lakers vs. Suns live stream. That's because, out of all the cable replacement services, Sling TV is the best at letting you pick which channels to subscribe to. This way you don't pay for a ton of channels you never watch. You get to choose between Sling TV Orange, Blue, or both. This game is on TNT, which is part of both packages. If your main reason for subscribing is for NBA games, you should pick Orange, since it includes ESPN. Right now you can get your first month of Sling TV for $15 -- that's $25 off the usual price.
